Deliverable 4: Authentic Assessment


To: Faculty, Ala Ike College
From: Dean of Students
Subject: Authentic Assessment

Thank you for your memos focusing on Problem-Based Learning and its effectiveness with student learning.  I have shared these with the Chancellor, and he has responded enthusiastically to your work.

I have also received wonderful praise from previous students in your class about about the real-life experiences they have had in your class. They mentioned authentic assessment, a form of assessment that I am unfamiliar with. Would you be able to post (on your blog) a 1/2 page response for the administrative staff?  I'd like for you to highlight the following:
  1. What authentic assessment is
  2. Two examples of good authentic assessments.
I will be sharing these with the staff.

Thank you,
Dean of Students
